Chakra

The Gateways to consciousness

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means "wheel of light". There are 7 main chakras along the Hara line (from the top of the head to the base of the spine and genitals). Each chakra appears as lotus-like vortices that spin and radiate light. The chakras provide gateways for a person's spirit and soul to communicate with cosmic energies. Carl Jung referred to chakras as the gateways of consciousness. Each chakra is associated with a body part and/or endocrine gland, colour,  level of personal development, sacramental association, physical and emotional functions and dysfunctions, yoga posture, musical note/tone/mantra, gemstone, crystals, fragrances/essential oils, zodiac and planet.

"The chakras are metaphysical vortices of energy originating in the ancient Indian system of healing, which positions them in major centres down the body, controlling the flow of subtle energies. They symbolize the connection between the spiritual and the physical, and coincide with the body's endocrine system. When they are in balance each of the seven major chakras helps a particular part of the body to function perfectly. When unbalanced, dysfunctional, or "blocked", a whole range of mental, emotional and physiological conditions can manifest themselves." Liz Simpson
